Apologies for the delay in posting the Weekly KPOP Charts for last week. While I did focus on Queendom 2 for a bit of the weekend, there was not enough time for me to smash out the post for the finale of Queendom 2 and post the Weekly KPOP Charts for the 1st Week of June 2022. These instead will be postponed, with the Weekly KPOP Chart to be posted today and the final Queendom 2 post will be posted later this week (possibly on the weekend). And I hope to restart writing some reviews from tomorrow, as well.
Wherever you are, hope you all have a good morning, afternoon, evening or night! It is night time here, so I am off to bed! And with that, here is my Weekly KPOP Chart for the 1st Week of June 2022.
New releases of the Week
In addition to the reviews I wrote last week for NCT DREAM’s Beatbox and VICTON’s Stupid O’Clock, here are the other new releases of the week:
- YOUNG BOY – HELLO GLOOM
- Starry Road – Kei
- The Greatest – BoA
- Mermaid – Xindy (ZEROSIX)
- VIVID – CRAVITY
- Your Eyes – Stray Kids
- Illusion – aespa
- lost – DVWN
- Love Shhh! – Jo Yuri
- Telescope – Bitsaeon (M.O.N.T)
- Happy Birthday – Colde
- Pirate Boy – BOYHOOD
And while they were technically released during the week before last week, I have decided to factor in the Queendom 2 singles as new releases for last week instead (simply because I had no time to listen to them when they were first released):
- Waka Boom – Hyolyn ft. Lee Young Ji
- AURA – WJSN
- THE GIRLS (Can’t Yurn Me Down) – Kep1er
- Red Sun! – VIVIZ
- POSE – LOONA
- Whistle – Brave Girls
I will be posting my final post on Queendom 2 (which will contain song reviews for the above singles) later this week.
Like last week, I took a time machine and went back a number of years to listen to a different songs from the past! KARA appeared and I just binged their songs last week. My song choice for the Throwback Corner is KARA’s last single, CUPID, which was released back in 2014.
Non-Korean Release of the Week
Woosung’s Phase Me is the past week’s non-Korean song release of the week, ranking in the 18th position. Check out Woosung’s Phase Me below (a review will be coming soon for the song).
Congratulations to NCT DREAM for topping the Weekly KPOP Chart for the 1st Week of June 2022 with their addictive comeback single, Beatbox. For more of the charts, keep on reading.
